Recently, the girls and I had a lunch date at McDonald’s. The girls had Happy Meals and then got to play on the playground at McDonald’s. But, it was not as fun as I envisioned. First off, baby girl can climb up into the playground on her own but then had a hard time figuring out how to get down. Secondly, there were a lot of kids there and some were a little….well….pushy. And that stressed baby girl out a lot. Big girl ran off to play with some other big kids and the whole adventure ended with me climbing up the tube slide so that I could get baby girl and help her down.
Ryan recommended trying again in the afternoon when there won’t be as many kids there.
